Tencent Cloud plans to launch a second Internet Data Centre (IDC) in Indonesia by the end of this year.
Interestingly, this is a first for Tencent – to set up two cloud data centres in the same year. In April the Chinese tech giant had launched its first IDC in Indonesia, which signalled its commitment to address the growing business needs in the country and the Asian region.
Tencent Cloud is Tencent’s cloud services brand, providing industry-leading cloud products and services to organisations and enterprises across the world.
The Indonesia data centre market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6 per cent from 2020−2026, on the back of increasing usage of tech adoption and government regulations, according to research from Arizton Advisory and Intelligence.
Following the launch of its first IDC, many Indonesian customers have opted for Tencent Cloud, which has prompted the company to open a second IDC. Tencent Cloud has provided significant support for the financial services industry, with products and solutions like the financially certificated distributed database TDSQL, eKYC, OCR as well as other AI technologies.
Indonesian institutions such as Bank Neo Commerce and Bank Mega also incorporated TDSQL to their core system. This upgraded database constructed by Tencent Cloud will help address the challenges of digital transformation in Indonesia’s financial services industry, including insufficient data architecture, high-frequency transactions and data security, among other factors.
Livestreaming and video solutions are now widely used tools by various sectors such as social, pan-entertainment and live shows, OTT sports, gaming, e-commerce, education and financial services. Tencent Cloud has reached 90 per cent of the audio and video customers in China and has provided complete video processing capabilities and various solutions in different areas.
In Indonesia, GOX, the first Indonesia gaming live streaming platform, has started leveraging Tencent Cloud’s industry-leading streaming service and content delivery network to offer low latency, seamless and stable gaming content to millions of viewers in Indonesia and worldwide.
Brands’ and companies’ customer engagement strategies, many of which involved Tencent Cloud’s solutions such as Live Video Broadcasting (LVB); Video on Demand (VOD); and Tencent Real-Time Communication (TRTC), have helped maintain a high level of engagement with their target audiences, such as the 127th, 128th and 129th China Import and Export Fair, Paris Fashion Week and the Global Tourism Economy Forum, among others.
Poshu Yeung, Senior Vice President, Tencent Cloud International, said: “Tencent Cloud’s IDC in Indonesia has truly begun to shape the country’s move to further digitalisation, which is evident in the growing number of clients, businesses and organizations that are achieving success through our high-quality products and services. Through Tencent Cloud’s safe, secure and reliable solutions as well as our invaluable experience across different industry sectors and industries, we look forward to working closely with our local partners and helping the country accelerate its digital transformation, which will be further boosted by putting a second IDC by the end of the year.”
With 24/7 security and infrastructure support, Tencent Cloud’s IDC in Indonesia attained certifications that prove its high-level safety and security standards, namely the Uptime Institute Tier III – Design & Facility, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, ISO 14001 and Indonesian national standard SNI.
Game developers looking for a high-quality cloud services platform with ultra-low latency, smooth sound quality, and anti-cheat measures have embraced Tencent Cloud. Some of its key game solutions include Game Multimedia Engine (GME), Game Server Elastic-scaling (GSE), Anti-Cheat Expert (ACE) and more.
Apart from its clients, Tencent Cloud also highlights how the company values its local partners, demonstrated in its work with Indonesian organizations such as Astrindo Starvision to promote cloud solutions in Indonesia and introduce its services to more enterprises in the country.
